A final-round score of 66 at Augusta National gave him a four-round total of 272 (16 under par) and titles in four consecutive majors . Woods won the 2000 U.S. Open, 2000 British Open, 2000 PGA Championship and the 2001 Masters in a span of 294 days by a combined 26 strokes.

Professionals’ caddies, just like the golfers for whom they work, are self-employed, independent contractors responsible for paying their own expenses . This year, the PGA Tour began providing caddies with a health insurance subsidy for the first time.
